- Spray the grill rack with nonstick spray; preheat the grill to high or prepare a hot fire.
- Stir together the oil, paprika, and salt in a medium bowl. Add the shrimp and toss to coat. Combine the remaining ingredients in a small bowl; set aside.
- Thread the shrimp on 4 skewers. (If using wooden skewers, soak in water about 30 minutes.) Place the shrimp on the grill rack. Grill just until opaque in the center, about 2 minutes on each side. Pile the shrimp on a platter and serve with the sauce. Yields about 5 shrimp and 2 tablespoons sauce per serving.
Sweet paprika is made from sweeter peppers, while hot paprika is made from more fiery ones. Smoked paprika is made from peppers that have been slow-smoked over oak fires, then ground.
